Along with basics, sales are a good opportunity to experiment with fashion on a budget. For instance, I was looking for a colorful sweater to change from my boring grey, navy, beige lot.
I first noticed the raspberry hue, then at the touch, the weighty and prickly quality of virgin wool (blended with a bit of polyamide), the length seemed just spot on - not too short or long and the volume when I tried it on finished to conquer me. Imagination did its job as I could figure out that this color would make an interesting match with most of my outerwear and bottoms.
Every winter it's the same thing, I want a shearling coat.
Every winter I renounce because the ones I want are way too expensive - even on sales. And every winter, I disdain the fake shearling coats because they look, well, fake. Not to mention that some are almost as pricy as the real ones... What's the point then?
This reversible coat is really cute even though I don't expect to keep me warm at all or even to last very long, in the meantime it will satisfy my craving.
